NB PLAYS! On the Road

Recorded on May 11th, 2015

Last week, we took NB PLAYS! on the road to present at Physical & Health Education Canada’s National Conference in Banff, Alberta.

The beautiful Banff Centre welcomed hundreds of delegates from across Canada, all promoters of health, physical activity and education for children and youth. Educators, public health administrators, recreation leaders and physical education specialists were all in attendance as we gave an overview of New Brunswick’s own NB PLAYS!, including a chance to page through our freshly printed copies of The PLAYBOOK.

We had a great time exploring the Rockies and attending interesting and engaging conference sessions. All in all, it was a success, providing an opportunity for delegates to network with colleagues and increase their knowledge and skills to foster healthy active living for children and youth in their communities.
